With the beauty of The Charred Barrel Society's blind review process, we tend to find ourselves continually surprised with the results of our blind taste test. However, with this week's TCBS review of Knob Creek's small batch 1oo proof aged 9 year Kentucky straight bourbon, the results were not what we were initially expecting of this perceived mid to top-shelf bourbon. The Tasting: The night started with a simple bottle of unknown origins being poured into unmarked glasses- an equal distribution of lightly amber colored liquid for reviewers waiting in anticipation
